Cincinnati: Cincinnati captured a share of the Big East for the fouth time in the past five years. The quarterback position was in flux this season for the Bearcats, as Brendon Kay ultimately replaced Munchie Legaux. Tailback George Winn rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 scores and hauled in 116 yards receiving.

Duke: David Cutcliffe ended the third-longest bowl drought in the FBS by winning 6 games this season. The bowl game is the school's first since the 1994-1995 season. A bowl win in Charlotte would be the Blue Devils' first since 1961. Duke has stumbled down the stretch and hasn't won since knocking off in-state rival North Carolina on October 20th.
